Group Voice Lessons
Instructors – Laryssa Doohovskoy, M.M. Vocal Performance and Pedagogy; Richard Barrett, B.M. Vocal Performance, Ph.D. candidate, University of Indiana
Through carefully guided exercises and repertoire study, students work to develop and refine their voice through focused work on:
- vocal color
- breath support
- vocal endurance
In a small and intensive online group lessons setting, students receive training in proper vocal technique and it’s application in a choral setting. This unique form of vocal training is designed to enable church singers to make the highest quality contribution to their choir. The repertoire studied is chosen from a variety of liturgical singing styles, and students are given personal technical guidance appropriate to their vocal range. Course length is 12 weeks.
